The Los Angeles chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association will hold its annual Parkinson’s Beach Brigade Walk-a-thon and Health Expo from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, April 29 at Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main St.
The two-mile walk event is part of a national fundraising effort supporting scientific research for a cure for Parkinson’s disease. April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month.
“This year’s event will be our biggest one yet,” said Nessa Weinman, director of the Los Angeles APDA chapter.
“Walkers and teams are registering and we have great sponsors on board. We also have support from the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and a lot of interest from celebrities and community leaders that support finding a cure for this devastating disease.”
Registration will begin at 9 a.m., with opening ceremonies starting at 10 a.m. and the walk scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
The health fair expo will be held before and after the walk until noon.
